We have had a wonderful, crazy busy summer, but now school is going to start in just a few days. While school days offer routine, they are still busy with homework, extracurricular activities and just drop off and pick up of two different kids at two different schools at two different times.
Today I picked a few posts that might help your day run a little more smoothly this fall (and save you some money):
How to Eat Beans Every Night – The Prudent Homemaker – I am thinking that cutting into the grocery budget is a good way to find extra money to snowflake, assuming we can still eat well. This post offers 10 bean meals in a variety. I think I’ll have meatless dinners twice a week in the fall.
Freezer Crockpot Cooking Round 2 - Kojo Designs – I love this idea! Chop meats and veggies for a few hours and have 14 freezer meals that you simply dump in the slow cooker the day you want to eat them. When my freezer starts to empty out from my CSA freezer cooking sessions, I am going to try this!
85 Snack Ideas for Kids (and Adults!) – 100 Days of Real Food Challenge – Tame the after school munchies with these healthy snack ideas.
Emeals Lunch Plan – Emeals – I love the folks at eMeals because they listen to their customers and continuously create new menu plans. This time they have created a lunch menu plan! They also offer a back to school checklist that contains 5 days of their lunch menu plan as well as printable messages to go in your child’s lunch! (See the sidebar on the website.)
